Spiritual guru Sadhguru's Isha Foundation will be celebrating Maha Shivratri on February 21 by organising programmes for five days starting from February 18 at Isha Yoga Centre in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu will also participate in the Mahashivarathri celebrations at Isha Yoga Centre on February 21, reported PTI. Naidu is expected to arrive in the city around noon on Friday and will head to Isha Yoga Centre, some 25 km away, by helicopter as per the initial travel plan.
The Mahashivratri celebrations will commence at 6 pm and go on till 6 am the next day, in front of 112-feet tall Adiyogi statue where Isha Foundation founder Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev will join thousands of people from all over the world.
